  1. Ok, now I know that there is no code as it is a 2003 and higher Boxster. Tks Thierry
  2. My brother just got his 2004 Boxster 2.7. After trying mine, he decided to sell his Z4 and go ahead with a Boxster. We are about to make some mod that will require to unplug the battery but as 99% of second owner, the radio code is not in the glove box. The radio is working right now. Is there a way to display the code as the radio is working or not? If not how can I find that code? Tks for your help. Thierry
  3. ...and the coolant plug crush washer...
  4. Thanks a lot, will do. Now let's order pump, low temp thermostat and Porsche coulant. Thierry
  5. I'll do so it means I'll have to remove the coolant drain plug and will have to unplug ALL rubber hoses including the radiators to let the coolant drains? There is no way to remove only the coolant drain plug and pressurise the coolant circuit with air so that all coolant escapes the system by the drain plug?
  6. I have another question about that process. As a preventive process, I will replace my water pump & thermostat using a lower temperature thermostat at Spring time. I have the Airlift 550000 and a 5 gal. compressor. My question is, do I need to drain ALL coolant from the car or I can just pick up the coolant that will fall from the water pump & thermostat housing, replace those pars, do a vacuum and put back the coolant that falls in the plastic pail? Tks! Thierry
  7. I had the same problem. Did order a custom rebuilt one plus a hand brake rebuilt from http://www.dallassteeringwheel.com/ Took a couple of weeks and sent back my old stuff as a core exchange. I'm very happy with the result.
  8. Thanks guys. Already removed one wheel. The surface is flat but not that bad. I will do the sandpaper trick. Thierry
  9. 2003 Boxster 2.7 Just replace my 4 discs. The pads have lot's of lfe on them so I did keep them. When doing a street test, I did feel that brake power was missing. Please see att. picture, looks like the pads are not sitting 100% on disc??? Any idea what I did wrong? Tks! Thierry
  10. Hi, Boxster 2003, 2.7 here. Did replace the brake fluid using my Motive bleeder. No problem there, very easy. But now I'm looking to do the same with my clutch BUT I can't find the bleeding nipple? I'm looking by the rear driver side wheel. The only nipple I can see is a black one that looks to be plastic and part of the salve cylinder. Is it the good one to use? Please have a look and confirm. Thanks! Thierry
  11. Very happy it works for you too. Enjoy! :thumbup: Thierry
  12. Guys; I had been battling with that roof rope since last year. That rope looks like a shoe rope. It goes from side to side of the roof just between inside liner and the roof membrane. It is attach on both sides to a kind of plastic eye that is screwed with a 15mm Tork screw. On both ends of the rope, there is a piece of sew fabric. Questions: 1- With the roof in service mode, when att. to both eyes, does that rope should be louse? Mine is. (See att. PDF photo). 2- Both ends of the rope don't stay attach to the eyes when I operate the the roof from open-close-open. Why? Is there a solution? Please have a look to the att. PDF picture for more details. Tks Thierry
  13. Thanks Loren, so seing your numbers I'm at half way, so doing 2000 miles/year, I will be ok for a few years... Thierry
  14. Hi guys; Winter is over so I did put back my 2003 Boxster 2.7 on the road. Prior to that I did check the rotors depth. Any body can confirm if I have to plan a change out in the near future: Here are my readings (electronic caliper): Front: 23.4mm & 23.2mm Rear: 19.7mm & 19.5mm Thanks for your help. Thierry
  15. Hi guys; My Boxster 2003, 2.7 will be out of hibernation in 2.5 months (I hope!). I'm planning to replace all 4 rotors before putting it back on the road. What rotor should I use? I did some reseach and found out that some people are using Zimmermann drilled one other tried them but had problems (warp). So what would you do? Staying with the Porsche one? Help please. Tks Thierry
